Note that this is even true for the proc server itself.  Whereever the proc
server needs to use the official task interface, it can often use local IPC
and its still very fast.  So, if you are careful about the interface and
implementation of proc, you could potentially use the same proc server
standalone as well as with a different task server.

Of course, this is just playing around with ideas.  If we are that far, it
might just as well make sense to have two different servers, as long as
performance is not affected too much.  It depends a lot on the actual
details of the interface, and there is also some room for tweaking.
